This was posted on here once beforem but I can't remember who did it...

To reduce your tires from ballooning when they lose traction, trying places some strapping tape along the inside of the tire. this basically makes the tire act like a belted tire.

steps to complete the process.

first, you need wash off your tire. best to use a cleaner that cuts away grease and grime. turn your tires inside out and use the cleaner to remove any molding release agents (if its a new tire) or the dirt and grease that build from usage. cut a piece of strapping tape that will go around the entire inside body of the tire. the more layers u add the stronger the tire. i personally use just 1 layer. next, return the tire to its original shape, and your done. install the foam into the tire and mount as u normally would.

ive heard of putting dabs of CA glue along the tape to help bond it to the tire. this makes sure that the tape will hold

buy the 3 stage foam for your tires.(becouse they're a good hard foam) The glue them to the inside of your tires. The foam will prevent it from expanding so much.
